When it comes to basics, the reality is that they’re often just that: basic. However, as with everything, there can be certain exceptions to this trope. Take the topic of today’s post, the striped sweater, as an example. There’s no denying it’s a classic, and it definitely has its place in every woman’s wardrobe, yet somehow it seems to feel like a standout piece too—and that’s why we love it. Whether in a bright multicolor pattern or in muted tones, classic silhouettes or updated cuts, the staple can not only be found in countless forms but also styled so many ways.
On that note, as you probably could have guessed, today we’ve rounded up some of our favorite ways to wear striped sweaters this fall and beyond. Of course, we’re also bringing you six of them to shop, all of which are under $30—and you can thank our very own Who What Wear collection for that.
